How to pick your perfect AW coat

With the nights drawing in and the interchangeable weather, it's safe to say coat season is finally here. 

So with that in mind, it's time to stock up on your outerwear as it's going to be the backbone of your autumn and winter wardrobe this season. 

But when it comes to picking the chosen one - or two, because let's face it, one is never enough - you want to make sure your coat ticks a multitude of boxes. 

Whether you're looking for something versatile, warm, practical but pretty, or easy to dress up and down - we've got you covered (literally). 


If you're after a classic coat...

Look no further than a tailored, longline offering that looks as good with jeans and a plain white tee as it does all dressed up. 

The best thing about this style? Firstly, it comes in 8 different colours including the likes of mint green, blue, yellow and pink, in addition to the more neutral colours of black and beige.

And secondIy, this tailored yet flattering-on-every-shape-style never goes out of fashion. Finishing just above your leg and coming with a formal-like-collar, you can wear this coat again (and again) without worrying about it looking so last year.  

If you love this style, you'll also love this formal funnel neck coat and this black checked longline coat


On the hunt for a coat that does all the talking...

Make a stylish stance this autumn in a coat that shines brighter than the sun. 

This season's new fashion rules state colour is king. So pick your favourite hue, in the brightest shade possible, and go forth and inject a heavy dose of sunshine into your look. If you're not shy when it comes to colour, try tonal dressing with our perfect-in-pink herringbone coat - which strikes the balance between informal and fancy - and go head-to-toe in the shade.

If colour is your thing, you'll also be partial to this pale pink teddy bear coat, which is as snug as it is chic, or this yellow coat with checks

Want a coat you can wear for everything?

If you're looking for a does-it-all coat, opt for neutral colours and think black, grey, navy or beige tones. 


Why? Because these colours not only compliment all skin tones, but they work brilliantly with any outfit. We'd style it with a jumper dress, shirt dress, jeans and a nice top or with a smarter ensemble for the 9 to 5. The list is endless. 

Check out these other options below if neutral tones are all your wear, like this pale longline grey jacket, and black and white formal coat

A coat for when the weather turns

We all know what the Great British weather can be like. So avoid getting caught short and opt for a rain-resistant, huge hooded jacket even Jack Frost couldn't get through. 

You don't have to sacrifice on fashion or functionality with this oh-so cosy quilted coat that comes with extra-large pockets and a heavy dose of warmth.

If you're a fan of a big coat, you'll also be lusting over this silver faux fur-trimmed parka which also comes in olive green
